The Mini Vinnies are quite literally mini St Vincent de Paul's.
The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days. Mini Vinnies are children in Year 2 who meet once a week to reflect on the Gospel and pray together. They think of ways to help others in school, in the locality and in the wider world through fundraising. The Mini Vinnies have their own 'treasured' Prayer, Pledge and Badge. It is an important way of developing the children’s faith and sense of mission as Christians, as well as an awareness of social justice. All children in Year 2 are given the opportunity to be a Mini Vinnie during the year.
